Is it ok to wear brownish shoes with a black jacket???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I've always thought a black jacket with brown shoes was always a no-no, but recently I've seen many people wearing this and it looks fine. What do you guys think? Is this a fashio no-no? What color shoes can you wear with a black jacket, other than black?

What type of coat? I wear my black pea coat, trench and light spring coat with brown shoes. I don't think coats like that matter. At least in my eyes they never did.

I actually think that brown shoes/boots have the potential as good or better with black jackets than black shoes do. It's all about how you coordinate the rest of your clothes, though.

 

Here's a picture of me wearing medium-dark brown boots with a black jacket on a nice 20 degree morning in Washington D.C. a few weeks ago:

            

 

Unfortunately the picture of the boots doesn't do them justice (my phone's camera is really, really, really bad in low lighting. They look much more like this: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/to-boot-new-york-stallworth-cap-toe-lace-up-boots?ID=771756).

 

Whether or not you think my style looks stupid is entirely up to you, of course! :P
